FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is another word for nonexistent

Saying something is nonexistent is the same as saying that it doesn’t exist. It can mean that the thing never existed, or that it did exist but doesn’t anymore.

Nonexistent doesn’t have a lot of close, single-word synonyms. But there are other ways to say the same thing. In some cases, you might describe the nonexistent thing as made-up, fabricated, fictional, a figment of someone’s imagination, or in some other way that implies that it’s a product of imagination or deception and is not real at all.

In other cases, you might use nonexistent to imply that something simply isn’t present or available—that there is none of it. For example, instead of saying “The budget for this project is nonexistent,” you might say “There is no budget for this project.”
